Accelerating Sustainable Development through Social Protection

CROP POVERTY BRIEF: By Babatunde Omilola (Head of Development Planning and Inclusive Sustainable Growth Team, UNDP), CROP Fellow.

June 2018

In order to accelerate progress in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, advancing social protection is an essential approach because of its holistic treatment of the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of poverty.

Embodying a rights-based conceptualization, Social Protection Floors help to promote the design of systems that reach all people with a focus on those furthest below the poverty line and the vulnerable, persons with disabilities, indigenous persons, children, youth and older persons, while optimizing synergies across sectors to address the multiple forms of inequalities that underpin poverty.

Social protection can play a particularly central role in the achievement of gender equality and women's empowerment.

Through responding to the immediate manifestations of poverty while also increasing populations' resilience to economic shocks in the long run and creating opportunities for inclusive and sustainable growth, social protection helps to bridge the nexus between humanitarian and development issues.

Social protection can make a significant contribution to the environmental objectives of the global sustainable development agenda through a number of direct and indirect pathways.
